One would be hard-pressed to find an area of the beer business untouched by Ed Heethuis in his 20+ years in beer. Not only is he a Certified Cicerone®, he is also a graduate of the famous Siebel Institute of Technology’s Professional Beer Tasting Course. Ed’s personalized beer presentations convey the finer points of beer tasting without getting bogged down in ‘geekspeak’.
A veteran participant of Disney’s California Food & Wine Festival for three consecutive years, Ed brings the perfect combination of humor and enlightenment to the novice beer drinker as well as incredible insight to devout aficionados of the world’s oldest alcoholic beverage.
In addition to his duties at Ritual Brewing Company in Redlands, CA, his column, Beer Behind the Orange Curtain has been a regular feature in The Celebrator Beer News where he has delighted readers since 2007. You will thoroughly enjoy his most enjoyable presentation!
